2018, what a year!
Only 12 more sleeps until Xmas. I cannot believe another year has ended and what a year it has been! Let me start by saying thank you to all our wonderful readers. It has been 2 years since we started our newsletter and we really hope that you have found the information valuable. We look forward to presenting new products and interesting ideas in 2019.
It’s always difficult to choose how to sum up the news for the year so rather than talk about what we have been doing I would like to end the news with some wonderful Xmas spirit I observed last week when I visited a facility in rural Victoria. There is no doubt the facility was definitely in need of some renovation work but what stood out was the spirit of the staff and the obvious involvement of the community. The local knitting/crocheting club got together with the residents and knitted a cover for a wingback, a light fitting, a chair and a wall hanging. The Wattle Glen Knitting Group also knitted a Merry Christmas wall hanging with personally named Xmas stockings to boot.
By the end of the year we are all in need of a well-deserved break and none are more worthy than my tremendous team. We are planning a Xmas lunch at the Mandoon Estate to experience some good ole bush tucker - that should go down a treat especially for our Scottish team-member, Fiona. Rather than Haggis on the menu this year it might be tasty witchetty grubs!
Christmas means different things to different people and for most of us it is a wonderful time to spend with family and friends, so from all of us here at de Fiddes Design we would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas and hope that Santa is kind to you this year.
We will be closing the office from Thursday 20th December and re-open on Monday the 7th January.
